Hidden video in Slides

Problem: I’m not sure how to achieve this in ActivePresenter, more familiar to Storyline.

I want to hide a video and have it auto play when button pressed. I don’t want my student to be able to not watch or skip the video.

ActivePresenter Version: 7.5.1

OS: Windows 10



Please follow the below steps:

  • Right-click the video and select the Initially Hidden option.
  • Go to the Properties pane, in the Video section, make sure that the Autoplay option is selected.
  • Select the button that you want to control the video, then go to Properties > Interactivity > Events & Actions to add an action to show the video.


Will give it a go and let you know if that worked.

Thanks for quick reply

WORKS GREAT but how do I make it hide again at end of the video.

Just add an Hide Object action to somewhere (a button for example).

So not automatic hide. Storyline has this feature. But Thanks for the assist.

I forgot to mention, there is a Hide After option when adding the Show Object action. Have you taken a look at this?


Will check it out. Thanks
